Reckoning With ‘Rust’: Dueling California Bills Tackle Set Safety

On Jan. 3, two Democratic state senators in California introduced separate bills that would come to represent distinct approaches to tackling safety on film and TV sets in the wake of the Rust tragedy.

Anthony Portantino and Dave Cortese introduced Senate Bills 829 and 831, respectively, which both propose further regulating the use of firearms and blanks during production and the safety training required for cast and crew, es...

On Jan. 3, two Democratic state senators in California introduced separate bills that would come to represent distinct approaches to tackling safety on film and TV sets in the wake of the Rust tragedy. Sens. Anthony Portantino and Dave Cortese introduced Senate Bills 829 and 831, respectively, which both propose further regulating the use of firearms and blanks during production and the safety training required for cast and crew, essentially prohibiting live ammunition except in ultra-specific scenarios (831, however, also requires the institution of a set safety supervisor role and the performance of a preproduction “risk assessment”). Both legislators have been clear that their legislation was motivated by the Oct. 21 shooting on a New Mexico set that left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead.

But it’s the differences between their approaches that shed light on industry groups’ lack of consensus over how to make production safer. While both senators have spoken with guilds like the Directors Guild of America (DGA) and IATSE as well as the Motion Picture Association — the trade group advocating for the major studios and Netflix — the MPA is supporting SB 829, and many unions back SB 831. Now, as the bills are en route to the same Senate committee, the questions they raise — about whether the Rust tragedy should lead to firearms regulation specifically (SB 829) or a larger overhaul of set safety practices (SB 831) — are coming to a head, and a familiar tension between employers and labor leaders, independence and oversight, is simmering beneath the surface. “The crux of the situation comes down to, is there a distinction between the firearms issue and other issues?” says Portantino, a former art director and prop master who has overseen armaments on set.

Portantino’s SB 829 requires a fire code official to be present during the use of firearms and blanks on set and tasks the Office of the State Fire Marshal with developing safety courses for crewmembers in collaboration with the industry’s joint labor and management safety committee. (That committee’s safety bulletins, which are decided by major studios and unions but not mandatory for productions, have long set safety standards, including for firearms, on major titles; Rust did not follow their own safety guidelines based on these bulletins, an April 19 New Mexico Occupational Health and Safety Bureau report said.)

MPA vp state and local government affairs Melissa Patack says the organization is supporting SB 829 because “the focus is on training, and the MPA member companies believe that that needs to be the priority.” The MPA is also supporting making their members’ and union projects’ best practices and policies “a legal standard for all productions in California,” she says.

Cortese’s SB 831 takes a more wide-ranging approach, calling for the institution of a “set safety supervisor” — an independent employee who would make a risk assessment in preproduction that is specific to the project and attend set every day — on all productions. As the bill is currently written, the supervisor would have the power to shut down production “for further review” if they deem it necessary. Though not a common position on American sets, such supervisors are used in Australia, the U.K. and New Zealand, advocates say.

Cortese, chair of the California Senate’s Labor, Public Employment and Retirement Committee, also requires the Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) to enforce the bill and propose a standard for the use of firearms on set to be adopted by January 2024.

Cortese — who in the immediate aftermath of the Rust shooting called for a ban on live ammunition and firearms capable of shooting live ammunition on sets, but modified that approach after industry feedback — says it was a conversation with the DGA about larger safety concerns that led him to extend his bill beyond firearms regulations. He says his bill creates “checks and balances in the system so that it’s much, much, much less likely that somebody will get away with disregarding the very rules that we’ve promulgated here.”

A long list of unions and labor groups, including the DGA, several IATSE locals, SAG-AFTRA and the Hollywood Teamsters, have come to formally support Cortese’s SB 831. “There are a lot of protocols in our industry, there are a lot of safety bulletins,” says Rebecca Rhine, national executive director of IATSE Local 600, the union that Halyna Hutchins belonged to and which has also lost members Sarah Jones and Brent Hershman in the past few decades. “What we think is that there’s a need to connect all of those rules and protocols to the actual on-the-ground workflow. And we believe that the safety supervisor is the piece that does that.”

Though neither the MPA nor labor groups have come out in opposition to each other’s favored bills, the set safety supervisor position as written in SB 831 may be one issue for management: Studios might not take kindly to an employee retaining the power to autonomously — and expensively — stop production.

On the flip side, Portantino may face resistance from some who think SB 829 “doesn’t quite go far enough in terms of having a penalty,” says Dario Frommer, a partner at Akin Gump who is a former majority leader of the California State Assembly. Outgoing IATSE Local 600 national president and seasoned cinematographer John Lindley (Snowfall, Field of Dreams) maintains that he doesn’t have criticisms for any legislators “trying to make the set a safer place” but believes a full-time set safety supervisor is “the simplest way forward for [management]. They can afford it, they know how to do it around the world, and they should just get on board doing it in North America.”

While the bills are still in the early stages of the legislative process — if they make it through the Senate, they will then follow a similar path in the State Assembly before landing on the governor’s desk — they will reach a critical point by entering the Senate Appropriations Committee (chaired by Portantino) in May. The senators say the language of their bills isn’t set in stone, and conversations with stakeholders are ongoing; labor and management leaders are also currently in talks.

Portantino says he hopes labor and management “continue to talk and that the final product represents more of a common ground.” Cortese adds: “We’ll take under consideration any proposed amendments that are consistent with the current intent of the bill.” If one or both of the bills continue to progress, the governor may receive legislation for consideration in August or September.

However these bills land, property person Karl Weschta, a member of the nonprofit American Entertainment Armories Association, hopes that they lead to greater standardization of practices across the country. “California typically will start this sort of thing, and then others will look to California’s way of doing things, and potentially [this could] be better for everybody,” he says. While legislation aiming to tackle film set safety training was postponed indefinitely in New Mexico earlier this year, a bill sponsored by New York State Sen. Kevin Thomas, which bans live ammunition at film production facilities and requires firearm training, is making its way through New York Senate committees.

Frommer says he would “not be surprised” if California’s two bills tackling the Rust tragedy were combined into one in the near future. “If you’re having two bills go on the floor, you’re making members choose between two really strong constituents in the legislature — organized labor and the motion picture [industry].” He believes the end result will likely be “something that maybe both parties won’t love but they can live with.”

A woman walking her dog in East Hollywood and found a USPS box with more than 100 undelivered ballots in it.

LOS ANGELES, CA — A woman walking her dog in East Hollywood said she found more than 100 unopened, undelivered ballots on a sidewalk, and the Los Angeles County Registrar's Office and the United States Postal Service are investigating.

Christina Repaci told Fox 11 that while walking her dog Saturday, she saw the envelopes in a USPS box, picked some of them up and saw they were ballots. She took them home and posted videos of the ballots on social media to share what she found, asking for guidance of what to do with them. She said she also called elected officials and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

"I actually called the sheriff's Department. I couldn't get through, so I emailed them," she told Fox 11. "I got an email back from a deputy basically in so many words saying it wasn't their problem, and to contact the USPS."

Repaci contacted the Registrar's Office and asked it to pick up the ballots. Los Angeles Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan picked them up, Repaci said.

"Our office was notified over the weekend of a mail tray found containing approximately 104 unopened, outbound vote by mail ballots and additional mail pieces," the Registrar-Recorder's office said in a statement. "Thanks to the cooperation of the person who found the ballots, we were able to quickly respond and coordinate the secure pickup of the ballots.

"We have reissued new ballots to the impacted voters. Early signs indicate that this was an incident of mail theft and not a directed attempt at disrupting the election. We are cooperating with the United States Postal Service and law enforcement to investigate.

"Security protocols such as signature verification are in place to protect against any misuse or wrongdoing of vote by mail ballots. If a voter sees or hears something that could impact the voting process, they are encouraged to call our office directly at 800-815-2666 or email"

A statement released by the Postal Service noted it was made aware of the ballots and subsequently reached out to the United States Postal Inspection Service to look into the discovery.

"Utilizing proven mail-fraud detection and loss prevention strategies and countermeasures, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, as the federal law enforcement and security arm of the Postal Service, actively identifies attempts to compromise the mail system on which our nation depends," said Natashi Garvins of USPS Strategic Communications.

"In doing so, the Inspection Service works closely with our state and local law enforcement partners, as well the Postal Service's Office of the Inspector General and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, to respond to and investigate election crimes involving the U.S. Mail."

California voters can fill out ballots and mail them from home -- with no postage needed -- or deliver them to any of the registrar's official ballot drop box locations around the county through Election Day. A signature is required for a vote to count.

Voters who return their ballot through the U.S. Postal Service can track it by signing up for "Where's My Ballot?"

California’s Next Cannabis Consumption Lounge Opens in West Hollywood

BackBack in October 2019, the Original Cannabis Cafe became the nation’s first place to openly consume cannabis. It was a smashing success, resulted in lines down the street, massive media coverage, and even secured Eater LA’s Surprise of the Year. Beginning today, West Hollywood’s second cannabis consumption lounge the Artist Tree Studio Cannabis Lounge opens its doors for on-site imbibing.

The Artist Tree Studio Lounge sits on top of the dispensary of the same name, which first opened in late 2019. It’s a split-level consumption lounge, where smoking is allowed on the second floor, with an edibles-only area on the top floor. The Artist Tree is a rare business for the city, let alone the country, having secured every license possible from West Hollywood officials. That includes on-site consumption, medical and adult-use retail, and delivery. For comparison, the Original Cannabis Cafe is a consumption lounge and dispensary only.

The Artist Tree Studio consumption lounge overlooks Santa Monica Boulevard just west of La Cienega Boulevard, with a second-floor lounge filled with books lining a deep blue bookcase near the host stand. Seating is either on the plush and plant-lined patio, but the breezy interior feels very much like an al fresco area with a massive sliding door. Advanced ionization air-filtration systems keep the smoke at a minimum, while servers take orders for cannabis flower, cannabis beverages, or edibles. Customers can bring their favorite pipes or papers, and if in need of assistance, visitors can rent a vaporizer or bong to take any cannabis experience a step further.

For the time being, co-founder and operator Lauren Fontein notes a 90-minute limit. Construction began a year ago after securing the proper permits, which also have certain limitations. Those limitations involve food and drinks.

Though table service includes cannabis consumption, food and drinks come from Kitchen 24. “We partnered with 24-hour restaurant Kitchen 24 as a delivery partner,” says Fontein. “If people want to order food, we have a dedicated menu. It’s an express delivery service that arrives within 20 to 25 minutes. We had to do it that way because there’s rules about having to separate a restaurant from the consumption space.”

No alcohol is allowed at any cannabis consumption lounge either, so Kitchen 24’s virgin margaritas, mojitos, and a virgin cucumber mule will have to do for those looking for beverages. If hungry, Kitchen 24’s breakfast burritos, Angus beef sliders, burgers, sandwiches, and salads, along with shakes, desserts, and smoothies, will keep the munchies at bay. If in need of a soda or coffee drink, that’s also available for order via the Toast app.

Cannabis orders take place on a tablet. Customers can make their own selections or get assistance from a server. Everything is listed by category, type, and dosage, and is a curated list of what’s sold downstairs at the full dispensary. If there’s a product available only the dispensary and not on the lounge menu, staff can still bring it upstairs. Speaking of staff, Artist Tree Studio servers are highly trained and knowledgeable about cannabis consumption to guide guests toward the best personal experience.

Fontein and business partners Avi and Mitchell Kahan are navigating the frequent state and local law changes while expanding their dispensary footprint throughout California. The partners have four dispensary locations throughout the region, including Koreatown, Beverly Hills, and Riverside, and working on a new retail store in Fresno. The dispensary and consumption lounges are filled with work by local artists, but the owners collect no commission for the art; performance spaces will host comedy, drag brunches, music, yoga classes, and more.

There are some familiar touches throughout the Artist Tree Studio. Los Angeles hospitality designer Kevin Klein — who developed Ricardo Zarate’s Short Stories on Fairfax — steered the look and feel of the Artist Tree, and also chose every book on the shelves. The overall ambience feels like a hip hotel lounge or swanky creative office.

The Artist Tree is only one of sixteen total cannabis consumption lounges scheduled to open in West Hollywood in the coming years. Though the Original Cannabis Cafe plans to reopen later this year, this “Emerald Village” of cannabis lounges is part of West Hollywood’s long-term strategy to embrace the cannabis industry. Undoubtedly, they’re loving the tax revenue too, while providing consumers with a legal place to enjoy cannabis. Hours at the Artist Tree are from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. daily.
